Today September 13th, 2013; Vijaya Aavani Moolam is the 54th day of HH 46th Srimath Azhagiyasingar, Srivan Sathakopa Sri Ranganatha Yathindra Maha Desikan’s Chathurmasya sankalpam. Abhigamanam and Theertham, SriSathari and Prasada Viniyogam were done by the usual time.
Today is the Thirunakshatram of HH 28th Srimath Azhagiyasingar, SriVan Sathakopa Sri Ranganatha Sathakopa Yathindra Mahadesikan. HH took avatharam at Thirukurungudi on an Avani Mulam day. HH was called to Sanyasam in Vijaya Aani Krishnapanchami day (July 7, 1833). This Srimath Azhagiyasingar had Sri Narasimha Sakshathkaram. Once a wealthy man offered a basketful of pomegranates mixed with gold coins but he was proud of his offering. Srimath Azhagiyasingar asked the kainkaryaparas to break the pomogranates and offered it to Perumal. HH put the gold coins in a dhonai and distributed it to the kainkaryaparas. On seeing the generosity of HH the rich man felt ashamed of his pride, hung his head in shame, sought forgiveness for his aparadham with tears in his eyes. HH readily forgave him and blessed him. HH 33rd and 34th Srimath Azhagiyasingars had great prathibhakthi towards this Srimath Azhagiyasingar. HH attained paramapadham in Durmukhi Varusham, Krishnapaksha Saptami day (December 29, 1836). Aasthanakalam was 3 years and 5 months. Brindavanam is at Madhuranthakam.
